Translation and Interpreting

Research in Translation and Interpreting is centred around two subthemes of Theoretical and practice-based research and Creative work.

There is an extensive cohort of practice-based research, such as research on public sign translation, subtitle translation, community translation, translation checking, online interpreting, online interpreting training and testing, liaison interpreting, and sign language interpreting. There is also research on various issues of translation and interpreting pedagogy.

The School is home to award winning translators including from German, Dr Geoff Wilkes and Japanese, Associate Professor Tomoko Aoyama. Translation research in the School encompasses literary and scholarly translations of contemporary and historical texts from, and into, a wide range of European and Asian languages.
